We have another great week of shows this week at Bluelight!!!
Our 2014 Bluelight Fall Singer/Songwriter competition is over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still come see some of the most talented songwriters in the region congregating every Monday for our songwriter nights. All original songs sung by the artists that created them. Cheapest drinks in town as well.
Though all four members of Wild Rabbit (formerly Br’er Rabbit) grew up running around wooded areas of the same small town in the farthest Northwest corner of Washington state, brothers Zach and Nathan didn’t meet Miranda, the third founding member, until they had all ended up in New York City. This kind of backyard folk seasoned by the edge, polish and fervor of big-city inclinations is at the root of the style they call folk-stomp Americana. The group revamps classic string band instrumentation with homespun percussion and the unique integration of six-string ukulele and cello. With their widely varying influences, three distinct vocal styles and copious amounts of foot-stomping, they demonstrate a sound and presence that’s at once original and familiar, appealing to audiences of all generations and genres.
Brandon Adams & Red Shahan
Although Charlie Shafter will not be involved (that we know of) in this great night of music, two of your all time Bluelight favorites will be hitting the stage. Usually when this happens we have a long list of celebrity guests show up and end up sharing their music for the night. Only one way to find out. Come enjoy the last pre-Thanksgiving night of the year with us!
